Is Alcohol Banned In Your Office?

Friday question, spurred by this incredible article: "How High-Flying Zenefits Fell To Earth" I encourage you to read it, it's a wild tale.

Money quote:

"Pervading the offices in San Francisco and Arizona, meanwhile, was an almost fraternity-like atmosphere, with whiskey shots, kegs, and bottles of champagne."

Zenefits, btw, is the poster child for the tech bubble and is now imploding for a variety of issues, including probably illegal actions.

In any event, I've never been in an office where alcohol was an issue (or for that matter, even used regularly) but what do you think?
